    UPS drivers Christine Ciardelli of Shohola and Michael Goulet of Dingmans Ferry were recently inducted into UPS’s prestigious Circle of Honor for achieving 25 years of accident-free driving.

    They, along with 22 elite drivers from Pennsylvania are among 1,445 newly inducted into the company’s honorary organization.

    Globally, 7,878 active UPS drivers are members of the Circle of Honor. Collectively they’ve racked up more than 221,000 years and more than 5.3 billion safe miles during their careers. That’s enough miles to travel to Mars and back 36 times.

    "My thanks go to all of them for their dedication and focus, and for the countless lives they've saved," said George Brooks, president, UPS East Region.

    UPS's 102,000 drivers are among the safest on the roads, logging more than 3 billion miles a year and delivering more than 4 billion packages safely.
